In 1924, two wealthy students at the University of Chicago -- Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb -- murdered a young boy in order to commit "the perfect crime." They became known as "The Thrill Killers" and they believed their own intellectual superiority absolved them of any responsibility for their actions. Nathan was passionate about Richard, who was passionate about crime and excitement, so the pair created a secret agreement to satisfy each other's needs. But soon, their perfect crime unraveled due to a careless mistake. Or was it so careless? Equinox Theatre Company's musical Thrill Me is based on their story, focusing on the obsessive nature of their relationship. Catch the regional premiere of this mesmerizing production when it hits Denver's Bug Theatre.
